‘SUPER 8’ at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien 5-9 September 2012

From Wednesday 5 to Sunday 9 September: 5 video works by Berlin based artists at Künstlerhaus Bethanien

SUPER 8 is an artist-curated, video art exhibition organized by the Los Angeles-based Christopher Grimes Gallery, where it first premiered July 8 through September 3, 2011. This ambitious video exhibition features the works of forty international contemporary artists. For this exhibition the gallery invited eight artists to curate a week-long program with fellow artists from their respective cities. Each week SUPER 8 focuses on a different city: Berlin, Dublin, Lisbon, London, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, and Tokyo. Within that week, a day is dedicated to the work of one artist. In addition to highlighting key video artists, SUPER 8 contextualizes their work within a global community of artists working in the same medium. Super 8 / Part 1 was presented from March 1st through March 21st, 2012 at Künstlerhaus Bethanien. The participating artists of Super 8 / Part 2 are from Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco and Tokyo.
